ENDANGERED SPECIES - Polar Bear

This challenge closed over 6 years ago.

The Challenge

The largest land carnivore, the Polar Bear lives within the Arctic circle. They will hunt anything and consider anything including humans as prey. With a diet mainly consisting of seals and seal blubber you would think the high fat content would give them heart disease but seal blubber is a polyunsaturate.

And we all know the reason why these bears are becoming threatened… Climate Change. Polar Bears hunt using the ice to travel but as the ice is melting the bears are having to travel further and further and this also means they have to swim, which can become very tiring.

There are around 20,000 – 25,000 polar bears, of which 15,000 are in Canada.
